Navy E-7 Retained with a 3-0 Board Vote of No Misconduct

A retirement-eligible Navy Chief allegedly made a racist comment to a subordinate Sailor. As a result, her command attempted to discharge her, which would have likely resulted in the loss of her retirement. At her discharge board, we presented evidence that the alleged “victim” of the racist comment had a history of filing baseless EO complaints throughout her career. Further, we demonstrated that the command failed to exhaust lesser administrative remedies for the situation. Result: The board voted 3-0 that our client committed NO MISCONDUCT and she was RETAINED in the Navy.
